Prayfit & Interview with Jimmy Peña

Gotta say that Jimmy Peña is an inspiration and a really nice guy who loves Jesus. No wonder God has given this exercise physiologist and bestselling author such an awesome gift -- the ability to teach others how to improve their bodies, stay healthy and honor God all at the same time.

Jimmy's latest DVD, Prayfit 33-Day Body Toning System, does all the above. And it makes a fabulous Christmas gift / stocking-stuffer.

Read my interview with Jimmy, watch the awesome trailer of  Prayfit 33-Day Body Toning System and glean more details on Prayfit -- a growing movement among health seekers -- here in The Examiner.

Cavalia: A Magical Encounter Between Human and Horse

Cavalia: A Magical Encounter Between Human and Horse premiered last night under the White Big Top located in the parking lot adjacent to San Diego’s Petco Park.

This breathtaking multimedia equestrian and acrobatic show was greeted by a full house of excited enthusiasts whose expectation was not disappointed. And no wonder! What’s not to love about fifty majestic horses comprising of 11 different races whose connection with their riders is, well, magical?

The charm of these magnificent horses was enhanced by multimedia effects, stunning music and the voice of an outstanding soloist together with the amazing artistry of skilled acrobats. Whether it was the horses’ gracefully prancing or cantering – with or without riders – alone or in choreographed sequence as part of a team -- it all made for an ethereal experience. Unforgettable and well-worth seeing.

Chasing Ice

Presently showing in select theaters, Chasing Ice is a stunning film about climate change and how it’s changing the world’s landscape at a ridiculously rapid rate.

In the spring of 2005, National Geographic assigns photographer James Balog the formidable task of capturing images in the Arctic so as to document its evolving topography. Balog finds himself in terrifying situations, risking his life and absent from his family for long stretches. But not in vain...

What God Hath Wrought - Chuck Smith & The Jesus Movement

One of the greatest spiritual revivals to sweep America, even the world, was the Jesus Movement. It happened back in the late sixties during the hippy era, and one of the key players was Chuck Smith.

What God Hath Wrought tells the story of Chuck Smith and the birth of the Jesus Movement and Calvary Chapel. It’s a story that has marked history in remarkable ways, changed lives radically; a story well worth hearing.

Read more about What God Hath Wrought in my section of The Examiner -- and, since, it's Halloween week, see a trailer of Chuck Smith talking on that topic.

The River

The River by Michael Neale tells the story of Gabriel Clarke, haunted since early childhood by the memory of a tragedy no child should have to witness—a misfortune that leaves him fragile and broken.

Gabriel’s life on a farm with his mother and an endearing older couple offers plenty of distractions for a young boy. But Gabriel’s deep sadness about what he witnessed and what he lost quenches his joy; life is a struggle and he is unable embrace all it has to offer.

But Gabriel’s story is not over. He was made for a higher purpose. He was made for The River. And only when he returns to The River—something brought about through circumstances beyond his own planning—does he face the truth.

The River forces Gabriel to overcome his fears, to face his past, and to discover the unpleasant details about what really happened on that dismal day when he was five-years-old. The River changes his life. But it also means he has to change his if he is to fully enjoy the freedom and joy The River offers him. He must forgive.

The River brings healing and redemption. Gabriel is finally home.

The River, although published by Thomas Nelson, is not an overtly Christian story but it is a safe wholesome and inspiring read for adults young and old alike.

Michael Neale is an award winning Christian songwriter, especially known for the song, Your Great Name.

The River is Michael’s first novel and can be found in most Christian bookstores.

Unconditional, the movie

Unconditional is a film you don’t want to miss—unless you’re scared of having your heartstrings pulled on that is. And it’s in theaters this weekend.

Unconditional is a story of tragedy and redemption drawn from the true-life testimony of Papa Joe Bradford from Tennessee but also focusing on Samantha Crawford and the untimely and unresolved death of her husband, Billy.

Sam’s idyllic life as a promising writer and gifted artist, and as a much-in-love young wife on a ranch in Tennessee, is smashed to pieces by the murder of her husband, Billy—a tragedy that rips away her faith and her very will to live.

Rescued - The Heart of Adoption and Caring for Orphans

Rescued – The Heart of Adoption and Caring for Orphans is now formally one of my favorite films with its powerful, soul-probing, tear-jerking message—and its backdrop question: What would a church that obeys James 1:27 look like?

The dilemma of a growing orphan population is one that is not widely discussed in the average church. On the contrary, it is little talked about. And therefore adoption as a way to end the orphan crisis is barely discussed either—even though adoption is the heart of the Gospel message.

Yet, over 160 million children in the world are without any parents.  And America boasts the stunning figure of some144,000 boys and girls in foster care needing to be adopted. 

Through some candid and inspiring interviews with adoptive families, Rescued – The Heart of Adoption and Caring for Orphans highlights the call to serve the fatherless, the hard-core realities of what it involves and the addresses the following questions:

Is God asking me personally to adopt? How can I know?
Do I have what it takes to adopt?
Will I love an adopted child the same as a biological child?

Somebody’s Child, another faith-centered GMC TV world première film, recounts the compelling story of a family battling life’s tests with a long-kept secret in the mix.

The Breakthrough

The Breakthrough, the third book in the Precinct 11 trilogy by bestselling author Jerry Jenkins, is awesomely nerve wracking. Sequel to The Betrayal and The Brotherhood, this novel unfolds a new drama involving the police squad of Chicago’s Precinct 11.

As Jenkins fans have come to expect, the storyline does not disappoint. It provides suspense, entertainment, believable characters—all the while probing into issues of the heart, faith and ethics.

After going through one of life’s greatest tragedies, the loss of his wife and young son, Chicago cop Boone Drake begins a new life with a sweet new family and renewed faith. All is rosy and God seems to be pouring out blessings when Boone suddenly finds himself again in the midst of unfathomable tragedy—worse than his previous loss.

Boone’s faith is again tested. Will he trust God—no matter what the outcome might be? Can he sit low and leave this heinous crime—a crime that is poignantly personal and tormenting—in the hands of fellow detectives?

Shaken to the core, yet unable to shake off his detective instincts, Boone is driven to help find the criminals—a trek that leads him to unimaginable arenas of terror and darkness. He finds himself caught up in the underworld of child trafficking. 

The Breakthrough is more than just a good read. It is a masterpiece of Christian fiction that unveils the atrocious realities surrounding child abduction and the perverted greed that drives it.

The Breakthrough comes out in September. Look for it in bookstores everywhere.

Pilgrims & Prodigals

It’s back-to-school again and, for many kids, that means returning to an education void of the classical arts. But here’s a timely, musical treat spiked with artistry and virtuosity, Pilgrims & Prodigals—a debut album by The Annie Moses Band—available nationwide on September 25.

The Annie Moses Band, best described as classical crossover, comprises of six siblings, all musical prodigies with myriad music awards between them (and some band members are also Juilliard graduates). Parents, Bill and Robin are the band’s backbone, creating musical arrangements and writing many of the songs featured in Pilgrims & Prodigals.

Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day

Today, I'm thankful. Thankful to see the crowds standing up for freedom of speech. I'm tired of hearing that we have to tolerate, be politically correct, shut our mouths...I'm wearied of hearing about the promotion of perversion and evil and the squelching and slamming of everything pure and holy.

Today, I'm thankful that America showed her true colors -- at least in my area -- and came out in support of Chick-fil-A. They came to eat chicken and shout out, "Cluck, cluck! We believe in FREEDOM OF SPEECH. We believe in the Bible."

Debuting in theaters nationwide September 21, 2012, Unconditional Joins Forces with Ministries Serving At-Risk Children & Youth Through Its ACT Campaign
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (June 19, 2012) – Harbinger Media Partners, LLC presents the captivating drama Unconditional, starring Lynn Collins (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 50 First Dates, and The Lake House) and Michael Ealy (Think Like a Man, Seven Pounds, 2 Fast 2 Furious, andBarbershop). This inspiring film releases in theaters September 21, and encourages viewers to make a difference in their own communities through its ACT campaign.
When describing the heart of the film, producers Jason Atkins and J. Wesley Legg state that, “No matter how dark your circumstance, working for those forgotten by society brings hope and turns servants into heroes.”
The two also developed Harbinger Media Partners, LLC with the intent on producing entertainment in a true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable way. Unconditional serves as its first production and was developed and produced in Nashville, Tenn.
Written and directed by Brent McCorkle, the film tells the story of Samantha Crawford (Lynn Collins), an acclaimed storybook artist, who seemingly had it all until she lost the love she cherished the most. When Sam’s storybook marriage is ripped away from her, she loses her faith and her will to live. Now fighting with despair, Samantha is obsessed with tracking down the murderer of her husband. However, a death-defying encounter with two children leads to a reunion with her oldest friend, Joe Bradford (Michael Ealy)… and begins Sam’s journey back toward God’s unconditional love.
Slowly dying of kidney disease, “Papa” Joe spends his last days serving fatherless children in the under-resourced community where he lives. Observing “Papa” Joe’s tireless love for “his” kids, Sam begins to find new purpose…until she comes face to face with her biggest fear. While she’s drawn to the innocence and hope of a child she’s befriended, the opportunity for revenge is strong.
Unconditional is a stirring film that will touch audiences and challenge them to consider what is most important in their own lives. The movie’s heartfelt themes include reconciliation, second chances, forgiveness, sacrifice and the true meaning of unconditional love.
Modeled after the real-life of “Papa” Joe, Unconditional serves not only to entertain but also inspire moviegoers to serve in areas of need just like Joe Bradford. Currently, Joe Bradford serves seven at-risk communities in and around Nashville through his ministry Elijah’s Heart. It is through this ministry that he champions a citywide multi-racial choir and coordinates walks of love where food and clothing are provided to those in need. 
“My dream is that Unconditional inspires cities to unite in love to rescue one of our most precious commodities: thousands of at-risk and fatherless children torn by poverty and oppression,” says Bradford.
Motivated by Bradford’s philanthropic endeavors, Unconditional launched its ACT campaign. The ACT campaign encourages moviegoers to serve alongside scores of non-profit organizations and ministries in their community. Audiences are directed to the film’s site to find where they can serve, while organizations are also encouraged to sign up and become partners with the film and its message. Opportunities to learn more about giving, volunteering, sharing and following are provided at

Commitment or the Pursuit of Happiness

(Photo courtesy JLD)

Are we bending the rules to accommodate our own "happiness"? 

Seems that adherence to truth is slowly sliding, slowly bending, like the Tower of Pisa. And the conception of what is upright has become blurred, and crooked;

So many people are bailing on their marriages because, well, they're just not happy. Their pursuit of happiness takes precedence to their pursuit of holiness. Most disturbing of all is the quantity of little hearts that are broken by their parents' choices . . .

Here's a fun book for your kids this summer, Children of Angels. Children of Angels

Children of Angels

Life isn’t easy for seventh-grader Jeremy Lapoint. Dad’s in prison and Mom can barely afford garage-sale clothes. Everything changes when Jeremy discovers that he can fly, pass through walls, and see angels and demons. He is chased by a demon through school hallways, but his guardian angel, Asiel, fights it off. The angel explains that Jeremy is a Nephilim—a human-angel hybrid—but Asiel doesn’t know exactly how that happened. Jeremy then discovers other Nephilim teens.

The Nephilim teens later find a report that details the source of their unusual genetics. They are about to take the report as evidence, but a gorilla-sized demon and his soldiers challenge them. When Asiel announces that the Lord of Hosts has deemed Jeremy a Battle Leader of Angels, the boy is not happy. Can heaven really expect a thirteen-year-old loser to turn into a mighty warrior?

May -- a time to change children's lives

May is Foster Care Awareness month—an initiative to help solve the increasing problem of children trapped in the foster system. About half a million kids remain in foster care in the USA. (100, 000 are waiting and hoping to be adopted.) Many age out of the system without a connecting family—no one to call family, and nowhere to go for the holidays.

So, what can one do to make May matter for the children? Here are some steps to take on behalf of the foster children. 

Read the full article -- and see a cool, inspiring video and also a slideshow -- here in The Examiner.  

And, for a larger sense of how to solve the orphan and foster care crisis, read my article in Assist News Service here.

A Walk Across the Sun -- a novel on child slavery

I'm deeply burdened for the millions of child slaves in the world. I'm especially disturbed to know there are child slaves right under our noses living here in the United States of America. A Walk Across the Sun is a novel about such horrors and is definitely not a book for the faint-at-heart.

For a full review of A Walk Across the Sun by Corban Addison, check out my article in The Christian Perspectives Examiner.

And let me say this before closing: If you, like me, are a Christ-follower, we don't have an option in this issue. It should be our burden. It must be our burden. Jesus has mandated us to be the salt of the earth, to reflect His light as the light of the world,
and to make the difference for the helpless. More on that later.

Be sure to stop by again soon.

But what the scientists didn’t calculate was the power of love.

It's Easter. So what?

As people pour into churches for Easter weekend -- many for the first time this year (the second time will be Christmas) -- others would give anything to be able to go to church, to be in a loving atmosphere. But they're stuck at home sick. Or in some far away land where the nearest church is a 10 mile walk away. Or, worse still, they are not allowed to attend church. (Such is the case of some children I know.)

But thank God, knowing Jesus doesn't depend on going to church (although church-life is a vital part of growing). Knowing Jesus is about, well, knowing Jesus. Knowing His resurrection at work within. And sometimes, fellowshipping with His sufferings (Philippians 3:10) so that resurrection power is manifest.

Easter is about the resurrection of Jesus, the Son of God who died for our sins. It is the celebration of new life. Bunnies and Easter eggs are basically pagan traditions but to the believer, they reflect newness of life, life bursting forth, resurrection. But the world is still filled with people who have not heard of Jesus, or if they have heard of Him, they don't know who He really is. They don't know how deeply He loves them and what He can offer them.

In a world that's messed up on every level -- a world that's calling wrong right, black white and so on, people need a savior, the Savior. They need Jesus.

Church attendance is expected to be huge this weekend. But how many will come to really know about Jesus?

Dawn Comes Early

What makes a beautiful and talented young girl want to forgo the chance of being married to become a ranch owner? And what happens when she meets the kind of man she never dreamed could exist? Will she stick to her guns or yield to love’s temptation?

Dawn Comes Early by Margaret Brownley is a good old-fashioned western romance laced with plenty of surprises and humor.

Kate Tenney is a writer who finds herself in straights when her novel is banned. Needing security and purpose, she answers an ad seeking an heiress for The Last Chance Ranch in Arizona. Only there’s a catch. If she passes the grueling trial period and is accepted, the contract mandates that she remain single. Not a problem for Kate since she doesn’t trust men anyway. Her real problem is whether she can master ranch life enough to be chosen as heiress—or so she thinks.

Then along comes Luke Adams . . . and Kate finds herself with a man-sized problem.

Not only is Brownley’s storyline tender, suspenseful and humorous, but her characters are masterfully crafted with their own individual personalities and idiosyncrasies. A delightful read.

I received this book as a Thomas Nelson Booksneeze blogger.

True Woman 101: Divine Design

When society revamps womanhood in a way that opposes the Maker’s original design, the world falls apart.

If you’re disturbed by where today’s culture is headed – an increase in divorce, dysfunctional families, gender blending etc – then here’s a book that offers solutions, True Woman 101: Divine Design – An Eight-Week Study on Biblical Womanhood by Mary A Kassian and Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

True Woman 101: Divine Design is a Bible-based workbook, which can be used by individuals or in a group setting. The book divulges the dilemma – the distortion of womanhood, which ultimately breeds dissatisfaction – and presents the solution – biblical womanhood.

Through the study of Scripture, Kassian and DeMoss show how men and women are inherently different. From the onset, the sexes were designed to complement one another and glorify God. And although the fall has messed up the picture, the original design cannot be ignored. Each man and woman is unique, but with a gender-specific purpose. As each embraces their God-ordained role, they find satisfaction and God is glorified.

Women are not less than men; God created them to complete the picture of Himself. This happens as men and women relate and interact in the way He intended.

True Woman 101: Divine Design is an attractively laid-out biblical discovery of the wonder of womanhood, an exploration of the true emancipation women can enjoy as they relish their role as a reflection of the bride of Christ.

Every woman, teenage girl and some men would benefit from this book (as would the women in their lives). True Woman 101: Divine Design has the potential to change history and bring true liberation through the Christ-centered counter-revolution it is sparking.

Just A Minute

Here's a book that makes me shout one loud "Yes!", Just A Minute by Wess Stafford.

Wess Stafford is the CEO and president of Compassion International and since I'm founder and president of Orphans First, what could be more appropriate than to read and promote such a life-impacting book?

Just A Minute is a compilation of true stories and testimonies of people—ordinary people, celebrities and historical figures—whose lives were impacted for good or bad by someone who took “just a minute” to build them up or tear them down through words, action or attitude. The author also showcases the immeasurable reward experienced by those who pour encouragement, godly direction, affection, inspiration, hope . . . into the heart of a child.

You can see the trailer and read my complete review of Just A Minute here in The Examiner.

Read my review. More importantly, read this book. It could change your life and the life of children.
